    Yay congratulations Sandy!  I'm so excited that there's someone else getting married at the resort too!  Lol I've been feeling like I was the only one.  I'm getting married on May 11, 2012!  We're staying on the Turquesa side, but I think the common areas are shared (?). 

     

    So you loved the resort?!  Do you have any pictures?  I haven't been, but everything looks fantastic from the website.  I'm thinking of doing our ceremony on the rooftop terrace, but I'm kind of concerned that it would be too windy - did you find that? 

     

    How did you find the restaurants?  Were there any that you would recommend for a reception?  I really like the Creperier and the Privilege restaurant, but I'm waiting to hear back on how feasible it would be to have a reception there. 

     

    Okay I'm going to stop myself from asking a billion questions, haha I could go on forever.  I'm excited to hear about your trip and planning details!

      Hi Tropic Lover! Yay! So happy we are only a two months apart fromthebig day! I have tons of pictures and will send you pics. I just need your email. we really enjoyed the SEnsai restaurant but wouldn't recommend it to host your reception. villa marina was a bit fancier and right next to the beach.. Very romantic. They serve surf and turf. We saw a wedding party there one of the nights we were there. Are you planning on having reception at the pool area next to le crepe restaurant? Ana said they only do that for really big parties because it would mean that they would have to close it off to guests for the night. We are having our reception on the terrace. It was not bad windy when we were there at night. It was just right in July but ask Ana about May wind. I do recommend that you hold your wedding ceremony on the ocean coral side. It is a lot more private and will avoid the chance of random beach goers watching your ceremony. It is roped off. We are having our ceremony there followed by our cocktail hour on the beach just steps away. Feel free to ask me anything else. Remember, we are in this together. Also, one more thing. . . They do not let you have your reception at their nicest restaurant called Fusion, this is because it is exclusive to H10 members and once again this would mean that they would have to close it off for guests but if you are a h10 member, I would recommend it for a rehearsal dinner. Hope this helps.

        Thanks Sandy!  It would be awesome if you could send over pictures!  You can use carolyn.tysen2012@gmail.com

         

        Thanks for the info on the restaurants.  I’m expecting about 40 people in total so I doubt they’d close down the restaurant for that amount.  I wonder if they would if we paid extra, although I’d need them to provide me with the dollar amount before deciding. 

         

        The Villa Marina would be nice too, but I’m not a big fan of sharing the space with other people, I’d rather have it to the wedding only ;-) 

         

        I do love the terrace so that’s totally an option.  I’ll try and sort out the wind factor.  I wonder if there’s a website that shows the wind patterns for the Mayan over the months, haha.  Did you find the Terrace private enough?  I know it’s off the lobby, but I’m thinking they’d close it off if there’s a wedding there.  For your reception on the terrace did Ana say you could have a dance floor set up there too?

         

        Thanks for the tip on Fusion; I like the idea of doing the rehearsal dinner there.  We’re probably staying as Privilege people, but our guests will be regulars.  I’m hoping this will give us a bit of privacy from everyone when we need it.

         

        Good luck with the planning!

          I'm getting married November 16 this year :) Congratulations! I'm also trying to decide on ceremony times. Does anyone know what time the sun sets in November? My photographer suggested family/bridal party pics are done 2 hours before sun set, so I was going to base the ceremony on that :)

           

          TropicLover - are you paying extra to have your reception go until midnight??

            Hi Chambers2011! 

             

            It's so nice that this board is becomming a little more active.  Below is a link to a website which shows the sunset and rise for Cancun in Nov 2011.  You can actually search a specific date for just about any city in the world.  For Nov 16 it says it will set at 5:06 pm.

              Here's an idea. Friend me on Facebook and look under my album named Mexico 2011. I just imported the entire lot of pics. My name is Sandy Borie. Otherwise it will take a long time to send you all pics thru email. did you send out invites already? You said you had a website up and running. I am so not technology friendly and am thinking of creating a Facebook page for our wedding. If you don't want to share the restaurant then do the terrace. It is closed off to guests. I mean people can still look thru the lobby but who cares right? They are going to be smiling away about your fabulous wedding! You will be soooooo incredibly happy that you won't care.

                Thanks for the contact with the make up artist! He looks amazing. Tell me about the prices if you end up going with him.

                    Great idea!  I'll do that right now.  We sent our save-the-dates out at the end of May beginning of June.  We did DIY boarding pass invites which turned out really good....it was a lot of work, but totally worth it in the end
